Was riding home from a play this evening, there's a terrific roundabout on the way, and there was no traffic about so I decided to try and push the bike a little into the corner. I had a bit of lean going on, and was feeling pretty happy with things until BAM! the edge of my boot hit the road. I wasn't expecting it at all, so I jumped a little in my seat which got the bike starting to slip away underneath me. Pushed my foot down to help straighten her up, and carried on my way. Avoided doing any damage, but gave myself a proper scare. It's time to buy those frame sliders I've been thinking about methinks. And then I think it's off to an advanced riding course at a race track - learn how far I can push the bike where it's safe to do so!
